All sickness records for an employee are entered and maintained via the Calendar. For more information about SSP entitlements, see
Within the Payroll setup, you can set up Statutory Sick Pay and Occupational Sick Pay defaults. Sick Pay Settings can be offset, if the other gross pay is being paid, then any SSP can be offset against this at employee level.
